Hello friends and fellow bookworms- It's been a while since I've blogged. I have lots of news:
1. I've lost over 100 pounds and kept it off for five years. A miracle that has totally changed my life in a wonderful way. I am healthier than I've ever been in my entire life. I was borderline diabetes, high triglycerides and cholesterol and I had a BMI of 42. At five feet three inches tall all that weight was killing me, not to mention all the aches and pains and discomforts. In this return-to-blogging I hope to talk about weight loss more. I'm not an expert, but I've come to understand that what I've gone through can help those considering the same path- surgery.
2. My second bit of news is that I'm writing again. I'm working on several projects, but the first draft to be finished is a novella called, "My Marine." It's about an older woman's encounters a younger marine while visiting Parris Island in Beaufort, South Carolina, home of the U.S. Marine Corp recruiters' boot camp. many thanks to my wonderful friends at CNYRW who've encouraged me, especially Nona Raines and ALee Drake. They've been busy writing since my hiatus. Nona has a new book out, No Promises, and ALee published her second contempory romance last year, Men in Ts. So happy for them.
3.I'm invited to a book signing at Liverpool Library on Saturday, February 27, with other fellow Central New York Romance Writers, following the library's presentation of the documentary, Love Between the Covers. http://www.duelingmodems.com/~cnyrw/events/index.html It's a story about our powerhouse industry and some of the individuals that write romance are featured. See our website for more details. I have several copies of Meltdown, which is still available at my publisher, the Wild Rose Press, and other booksellers online. I've very excited about this opportunity. I hope you can stop by.http://www.duelingmodems.com/~cnyrw/events/index.html
